article description
Differential and total elastic and total reaction cross sections are calculated for electron-hydrogen scattering at 30, 100, and 400 eV using an ab initio optical potential that treats bound and continuum nonelastic channels in the distorted-wave Born approximation. Multichannel and partial wave expansions are carried out to numerical convergence. Convergence criteria and quadratures for the continuum-energy integration are chosen for 1% overall accuracy. Results are compared with experiment and less detailed calculations. © 1989 The American Physical Society.
